My partner and I have visited this establishment many times. On our recent visit we noticed it had changed from a pub to a cafe/bar. Fair enough but having ordered two pints of Brain's bitter I was astonished to be asked for £7.46, for a beer with an ABV of 4. Other than that the service was good and the... More

Attended a 60th birthday party in the upstairs room. The room was great for the event. Big enough for a live band, with a dance floor, and enough room for around 80/100 people. Staff at the bar were quick to serve us and friendly. I think this a popular pub in the area, from what we were told.

We went into Monmouth shopping and decided to have a bar meal for a change. We had decided to go to Weatherspoon’s, which I know is nothing special but it’s cheap, convenient and would suffice for a quick lunch. We saw the sign for this place whilst walking up the main street, as we’ve never been before we thought we’d... More

Visiting relatives in Monmouth found this place by accident as I had forgotten it was there. Excellent home cooked food using local produce. The daily specials are varied with a good selection of fish dishes. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the puddings were yummy. The staff are really friendly including the chef. They also serve snacks light meals... More

We eat at The Coach House on a regular basis and although it is a little 'Fawlty Towers-ish' (those who have eaten there will know what I mean!) it is a delightful little restaurant with a lovely flower filled courtyard away from the hustle and bustle of the town. A family business, run by Derek and Sandra and a handful... More

The menu was very ordinary for a lunchtime and no particular surprises. I had a jacket potato with ham and mustard. It would have been nice with some butter on it. The sliced ham was tasty but the mustard mayonnaise had obviously been used before and put me off a little. The crockery could do with a good bleaching with... More

Hidden away behind the Kings Head it's one of those places the locals seem to love to keep to themselves. Fantastic food and service. The owners are actively involved in the resturant and this shows in the level of service. Do yourself a favour and get in there for a meal!!

This restaurant\cafe is a few yards off the main street and therefore can easily be missed. The service is attentive but unobtrusive. No pretentious rubbish like frogs legs in caramel just honest well cooked meals. Understand from the owner that only locally sourced ingredients are used and this was reflected in the taste. I opted for the home made fishcakes... More

Our family, travelling from Birmingham and South Wales, has met up at the Coach House on three occasions and has been very happy each time with the food and service. The welcome has been warm for both adults and children and, having previously tried other Monmouth pubs and restaurants, this is now our preferred place to get together.
